One Election Please, and Hold the Chef

There is no doubt that our voting system is outdated and severely flawed. For instance, I went to vote at 6:30 this morning in the lobby of the building next door. The line was about 50 people long, so I decided to vote after work (half day) and I waited about 25 minutes then. I did warn Erik that he'd have to get up early to vote...but by the time he got there the wait was over 3 hours. Of course he couldn't wait and he just went to work. And being a chef he won't be done with work until after midnight. Missed opportunity. Too bad for him, because we voted for different candidates and got my vote in.

My chef was supposed to have Tuesday evening off. But of course, someone called in and he was at work from 8am until 11pm. Luckily, he was able to duck out during a lull at 2 and was through the polling place and back at work in an hour. Yay for voting!
